FAYETTEVILLE, NC – The Winston-Salem State Lady Rams (11-4, 10-1 CIAA) extended their winning streak to six games when the team took a 5-0 win over the Lincoln (Pa.) Lions, Friday afternoon. With the win, the Lady Rams keep a six-match winning streak alive and their streak of six straight matches without allowing a match point to their opponents.
